New York is a tricky place to stay because you really have to balance value with location and services. Trip advisor helped me choose this hotel and I'm glad I stayed here. It is much better value than hotels closer to the Broadway hub and the extra bonus is that it is much quieter too. The location is great being... More

We chose The Lucerne Hotel for it's location (upper west side), room size (two full size beds), price, and consistently high ratings here on Trip Advisor. Check-in was quick, and the room we received with the 4 night 20% discount did not have much of a view, but was a nice, large corner room with windows on 2 walls and... More

The rooms was large and comfortable. The hotel is easy walking distance from Metro station. Therefore it is easy to get downtown Manhattan very quickly. The hotel is close to Central Park, Museum of Natural History and The Met is not too far. The immediate surrounding offers many dinning options, from little deli shops to nice restaurants. I loved that... More

Lovely hotel in a wonderful area - close to so many interesting sites, restaurants, etc., but away from the noise and crowds. Room was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Staff were excellent - friendly and welcoming.

Gorgeous hotel! Perfect location to 79th street train station! Shopping nearby was convenient and many places to eat were within walking distance. Very clean and comfortable. Hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended this hotel.

If you want to a place in west side, this is a good choice. We stayed in a suite for 2 weeks. The front desk people need to smile every now and then. I really appreciate that the check in was really quick! They also let us get to our room early. The beds were very soft, some people might... More

I recently had a horrendous experience with Hotels.com regarding a change in my reservation dates at the Lucerne, they were no help whatsoever. I called Ghizlane, the manager of the Lucerne Hotel, who understood my dilemma immediately and worked with me towards a positive solution at once. Without her help, this would have been a vacation nightmare and we would... More

Our family had a FANTASTIC experience at The Lucerne, celebrating our parents' 50th wedding anniversary with 4 nights in NYC. This hotel was just perfect us - great location near Central Park and subway, clean, large rooms (a rarity in NYC), friendly staff, and nice French bar/restaurant next door (Nice Matin). We had rooms on the 10th and 12th floors... More
